Working papers of a history of the Universalist Church in the south. Misc information dug out from the late 1700s to the mid 1900s. In no particular order or pattern.
No, thank the dear sweet Lord I did not live in Canon (pop. 810) as my work and social options would have been still thinner than living in Athens (pop. 100,000) 36 miles southwest.The church sold the house to a non-member relation of the Bowers family (which pretty much makes up the church and good fraction of the town) years ago and it is good shape. It is kitty-corner across from the church. Both are on Ga. Hwy 17 in the middle of town.
yes, living across from where you work in a rural community, where as a minister -one would be living in a spotlight, vs. living a half hour away in a college town does seem a clear choice for most folks.Sorry to hear that the parsonage was sold -- and the Universalist Herald building gone, but that's not so unexpected...Thanks
